, hagel at the pentagon, jack lew now at treasury? these are the big jobs, and it's sort of striking. you don't have women at the white house staff at the most senior levels. there are deputy chiefs of staff who are not even being mentioned as skrd to replace jack lew. >> it's the -- it's the optics. it doesn't help young women coming up to see these pictures. i think that the white house is always mentioning her az apossibility, and i think that was more just to let people know that they were considering a woman. i think that hagel was the choice the president all along, and that often happens. now, people -- the president and the people are saying, well, there's always women in the second tier jobs, but you don't see those women on tv. you see the secretaries and so, again, it's a problem with optics. >> susan page, you are such ab period of time as the bureau chief of usa today. mountain out of a mole hill, or as jean says, women have different experiences. we're 50% of the population, and being at the table makes a big difference. >> well, to be clear president obama has a pretty good

for the pentagon job. general, welcome. thank you very much. >> nice to be with you. thank you. >> tell me why you think chuck hagel is the right person for this job despite all the controversy that has been raised about what he said about israel in the past and iran in the past, criticisms of some of his other statements certainly the statements about gay americans. >> i think for two, maybe three reasons. first of all, he is a very solid, sound thinker. he has been involved in these matters for decades. he comes at decisions by analysis. not by a mee jerk support for this philosophy or that, but what is best for the united states. that's a wonderful attitude, and i think he and john kerry have similar points of view, and they'll be a good team. but, secondly, he is -- he would be the first secretary of defense to have served as an enlisted man in the trenches. from uso to veterans administration, he understands the political and human problems in a way that no other secretary has. >> do you think that he has the experience and the skill to get his arms around that pentagon bureaucracy and all th
of the pentagon. josh rogan at foreign policy first breaking the news on the nomination and noting in the same breath all the republican senators that are against the nomination. john cornyn saying he can't support chuck hagel because he has a, quote, problem with israel. senator dan coates said chuck hagel has had so much disrespect for the military which is a pretty rich thing to say about a veteran. he would lack experience he would need for the job. senator mccain says his colleague barely even counts as a republican. senator mark kirk says he is, quote, concerned about mr. hagel. mr. hagel also faces opposition from the democratic side for the time back in 1998 when he opposed an ambassador nominee for being what mr. hagel described at the time openly aggressively guy, for which he finally apologized last month. there is also opposition to a lesser extent just because chuck haguele is a republican. this is not ideological opposition. it's partisan. but in the technical sense of that. why is it that democratic presidents always appoint republicans to run the pentagon, but republican presid
they did that deal, they kicked the cuts -- the cuts in the pentagon and the human services $1.2 trillion down the road for two months, so there may yet be a ton of spending cuts. that's what i'm hoping for, and i think -- i think the suggestion that there's got to be some significant pentagon spending cuts is exactly right. it hasn't been done for about 30 years and a lot of money in the pentagon budget is not asked for by the military, by congress people who have plants in their districts so, you know, there's a lot of room for cutting here. i agree with that. >> why aren't we doing any cuting? it seems like the -- >> nobody has the nerve. >> constantly surrounds tax increases, but even this, you know, with the top dems sending this letter to the president saying we believe that you've got to be willing to make -- take steps to ensure america doesn't break the promises and do not negotiate over the debt ceiling, it's all about, you know, stick to your way and don't negotiate. how come we're not just admitting what the issue is and just coming up with spending cut ideas? >> because nobod

produced by our great pentagon producer justin fishel last friday. he wrote "the white house is not considering any option that would leave more than 10,000 american troops in afghanistan beyond 2014. ". a senior administration official and senior military force told fox news despite reports that the administration could leave a much larger footprint after that deadline for handing over security to the afghans. there you have it. 10,000 s what we are reportedly hearing from the pentagon. >> i worry about the art fix deadlines and artificial numbers not dictated by the facts on the ground. we have to see as the afghanistan forces are standing up and make sure that they are trained and we cooperate with them with counterinsurgency and the training and advising and continues. to just pull out a date and say this is the number of troops does not respect the realities on the ground. we made that mistake with iraq and i hope that the obama administration learned from its mistakes and when we withdraw forces along with allies we do so in a way that i say treasures all of the lives t
of pulling all troops out of afghanistan. now the pentagon is pushing back, saying it could jeopardize any negotiating power with the taliban. >> the position we take in showing that we are going to continue to complete this mission, the better the chances we have to ultimately achieve political reconciliation. >> the pentagon was only the beginning of the afghan president's visit to washington. >> our meeting, i believe, helped -- will help lay the ground work for president karzai's discussions tomorrow with president obama. >> sources say president karzai and his defense minister brought a wish list to the pentagon, drones, helicopters, and hardware to support their security forces. >> what we talked about yesterday was, you know, let's move beyond a wish list of equipment. >> the u.s. want assurances the terrorists won't set up troops in afghanistan after the troops leave. karzai agreed. >> be able to provide security to these people. >> but a recent pentagon reports that the afghan border patrol relies on the u.s. for even its most basic needs, food and water. it's rife with illiteracy

in the end this is going to help the president in his efforts to draw down the pentagon budget and have the republican support that he needs. he needs at least to maintain a centrist bipartisan commitment to the effort in afghanistan in a way that doesn't leave his most vocal opponents on the right basically say that the president abandoned afghanistan and left the afghani people to their own devices. he doesn't need that and as long as the troops on the ground do this to protect them adequately, i think the president can accomplish his goal. >> thank you, general. >>> up next from afghanistan, to gun control and the president's cabinet, what we learned as "the cycle" rolls on. it's friday.

on my show, colonel ellen herring, one of two women suing the pentagon for discrimination saying all the jobs should be open to everyone, men, women, the standards shouldn't be lowered, it should be one single standard. how can you help make that happen? >> well first of all, april makes ten years for me serving in the army national guard. we have women who have been serving in combat roles for a long time whether it has been under a combat title or not. if we look back to the civil war, we had women who were disguising themselves as men, so they could serve. we have in hawaii two brigades who have females who are serving in infantry units, and i think there is so much room for progress and we just need to make the connection from reality of the roles that women are already playing in our military and perception, where people don't have as close an understanding of the great contributions and sacrifices that women have been making for our country for a very long time. >> okay. >> that's what i'm excited about. i'm able to bring my own firsthand experience, my own deployments to the f

secretary of defense who everybody likes a lot. >>gretchen: who is that? >>brian: she's been in the pentagon. >>gretchen: i never heard her name as an option. for me, there's two reasons why this will not be a problem for chuck hagel in the long run. first of all, are the american people paying attention to this? i mean, i think if you could get the american people involved and they start representatives and say i have a problem with this or i light chuck hagel, then it becomes a hotter topic and you might see some sort of possibility that it doesn't happen. but if you don't get the american people involved, i think it is an easy situation for him. people talk about political capital. why would the president do this kind of fight? he was elected for four more years. to me, this president has shown in the first four years that he's willing to go to battle for these types of things because remember when he won the first election, one of the first thing he said was "i won the election." >>steve: after george bush and george bush lost all his political capital by the time katrina hit. he was not
